More and more entities are being linked to a Wikidata entry. In an earlier discussion in march dns_server said [quote=“dns_server, post:9, topic:4196”]
One thing to note is linking to wiki data is preferred over linking to a language specific article.
Linking to wikidata allows the language specific article to be found instead of being fixed with the one article.

Please link the Wikidata link alone instead of any Wikipedia link.
At least if it exists, you can right-click copy it from the Wikipedia left hand side bar.
This way, it will survive any further Wikipedia renames and it will link to all languages.
Is this consensus or official policy? Does it make sense to keep the Wikipedia link(s) once we have linked to Wikidata or should they be removed as redundant?
And shouldn’t we add some words about the preferred policy (and about Wikidata in general) in our documentation?
